- About us
There are altogether 24 academic and industrial facilities across different parts of the Czech Republic participating in the NCC for MATCA that share a common interest in advanced technologies R&D.
The NCK MATCA consortium has grown noticeably over the period of its existence and from the original seven founding members, a total of 20 NCK MATCA institutes from the academic and industrial sphere, which combine research and development of advanced technologies, are currently scattered across the Czech Republic.
We would like to continue our very promising cooperation and applied research, and continue to connect the academic and industrial spheres. Therefore, in April this year, an application was submitted for the second public competition of the Program of the National Centre of Competence, announced by the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic (TAČR). Not only all the current institutes of our consortium, but also four new partners (Institute for Hydrodynamics of the CAS, v. v. i., SHM, s. r. o., ad-tech s.r.o. and Advanced Metal Powders s.r.o.) enter with us into the follow-up NCK MATCA 2.
The results of the competition will be known until 30th November 2022.
Motol University Hospital ranks among top medical institutions in the Czech Republic. Its significance lies not only in the scope of practised disciplines and available capacities but also in a nearly unprecedented concentration of all operations into one location. This location, namely two building blocks, brings together specialized teams of doctors and nurses from a number of medical disciplines which can immediately join forces to provide the most comprehensive medical care. The principles of comprehensiveness and completeness have long been an underlying concept of the hospital.
Their wide spectrum of medical fields covers almost the entire range of regular health care that gradually transitions to specialized and super-specialized health care. Motol University Hospital serves as the next-level authority for a number of hospitals across the Czech Republic.
In recent years, the Motol Hospital has become a sought-after destination among foreign patients who look for a high-end treatment in pediatrics. Due to this segment, the Motol hospital is a recognized and as a world-renowned healthcare centre, meeting globally applicable requirements on patient care.
